7 Reasons You Should Take Private Yoga Classes

Unlike group classes, private lessons are a one-on-one experience with a dedicated instructor. Private lessons can bring about improvements to your mental and physical health while helping to achieve personal yoga goals. Here are 7 key ways you can benefit from private yoga lesson:

1. Creating a Personalized Schedule

We live busy lives and being able to schedule a yoga class that suits you is incredibly valuable for time management. Making the time to practice is a vital element of yoga, and private lessons can accommodate even the most hectic of schedules.

2. Gaining Initial Experience

When first starting out in yoga, students can feel overwhelmed in a typical class settings, particularly during the first few classes. It can seem difficult to keep up and flexibility might require a little work before it becomes easier to get into different poses. A private yoga instructor shows each movement personally and can help improve your form immediately, which makes it easier to get started.

3. Personalized Lessons

By taking private yoga classes, you have more control over the pace and direction of the sessions. You can incorporate your goals and objectives while having an expert tailor classes for you.

4. Advancement in Yoga

Private instruction can offer the push needed to take your yoga practice to a more advanced level. While a group session requires a single instructor to watch several students, a private lesson means the instructor has both eyes concentrated on one person. A private instructor will give personalized help on particular aspects and skills that one needs to develop in order to become a more advanced yoga student.

5. Tools You Will Have for a Lifetime

The right private yoga teacher will give you tools you can always use outside of a class or as we say in the yoga world, “off the mat.”

6. Focusing on Personal Goals

Private lessons allow you to set personal goals for your practice and it’s a great way to see growth from your practice.

7. Boosting Your Confidence

A steady, regular yoga practice will bring about improvements, not just physically but mentally.

A yoga student can certainly benefit from a group session. However, the benefits of practicing yoga with a trained professional in an individualized setting are plentiful. By investing in private lessons, this naturally ensures that a student is more willing to learn and practice.
